7:26am
segment on fair evaders at muni civic center station someone pointed out to me an exploitable flaw in the system. apparently these muni gates will open with nothing more than a wave of your hand. so ether you can wave your clipper card or wave your hand. apparently after spending millions of tax payers' dollars to install this new clipper fair system all the bugs have not yet been worked out. because simply waving your hand across these censers allow you access. >> so if someone sticks there hand on the censer it obviously opens it up making fairs for free. >> james bryant is a union rep from muni station agents, who just happened to be present when the flaw was discovered. don't get me wrong, there are other ways to exploit the system like piggy backing off another paying customer, but a flaw that allows riders access by just waving your hand if not corrected could cost muni millions. for the record although i am showing you this flaw, it is illegal to ride muni without first paying your fair.
7:27am
>> now that i have this ticket kron 4, i am going to ride muni. >> it is called fair evasion, and that is illegal. in san francisco, stanley roberts, kron4 news. >> we spoke to me but this problem and they say it is the first that they've heard of it. listen to this. >> the bottom line here is the despair of nation and not only is it not monitored but we're going to pursue the people that are violating our policy. we have police of this isn't done to evaluate the situation in track down all of those who are skipping out on fares. >> to get a sense that it will get worse given how easy this? >> well it is easy to evade fair's before such as something we have to deal with when you're dealing with transportation industry. we of had fare gates
7:28am
and this is nothing that is not new to us to these dates may be new but we will adjust to whatever problem arises in this is one of those problems. >> they say there might not be as straightforward fixed because the whole reason they go through is because there builds the the safety mechanism and that is why when you waive it is hard. kind of like an elevator. will be back with more of a few minutes. time meg whitman told a lie her nose would grow? newspapers report the claims in this meg whitman ad are false. and she knows it. taxes went down under jerry brown. but whitman's nose keeps growing by the millions.
7:29am
meg whitman's nose keeps growing. whitman says california lost jobs under jerry brown. turns out 1.9 million jobs were created. she spent millions saying jerry brown raised taxes.
7:30am

7:32am
and along the peninsula down and morgan hill and even the livermore valley is dealing with little bit more of the fog. the afternoon highs getting up into these and san francisco which is quite a bit of a cool down and done to this if it is about 73 million to and as you drop to the rest of the weekend is going to continue to be cool, kind of wet. things are dry they don't. george? >> we're still looking at a hot spot free commute, so far no problems for the bay area drive. we've seen good conditions in marin under interstate 80 and the 280 looks good. even this 117 looks good. the ride into the bay bridge has a little bit of a buildup in the west bound direction the we're still incident for in the back that now extends to the eastern end of the parking lot. this is the best date in three days that we

10:05am
fire was coming through the roof. there are large homes surrounding and then were evacuated. the firestorm around 7:00 a.m. they got everybody out safely. they think it was because an adult son left it unattended candle. and that may have started the fire so they had half a dozen houses in this area that were evacuated because it wanted to make sure everyone was ok. nobody's been hurt street closures in the area at the time. university avenue at seneca are closed. lookit that huge home that was on fire. they could be out there for another hour so. a lot of electrical woman was sexually assaulted at this apartment complex. sen place three similar assaults happen at this summer. coleman in the '20s was attacked last night inside one of the apartments on all growth.

10:08am
school. the cause of what we think she smelled there's a power aided outage in san bruno millbrae the cause is under rustication but apparently when the teacher when to turn on the heating unit across from her class their regulator did not pick up no power feeding the union and you turn on the stove initial smell of gas was led out into the air. that is what she smelled we believe at this time. >> yesterday when they evacuated the other school was the same thing it was a heater. it is getting colder out and go with the powder route bridge they're turning up power on. is this going to be the case where every time you turn the heat our aunt for the first time you'll smell gas but it's ok? and it's not a gas leak.
10:09am
>> it could be the cause little different than yesterday yesterday was a heating system on a roof and there was a buildup of been there. today was a little different with the power being out teacher trying to turn on or heating unit. one thing i can say is if customers have cause for concern we urge them to call we would rather be out here responding to these sorts of calls rather than we would rather be safe than sorry. we wanna make sure that all the folks in san bruno we will be here to address any concerns for the >> long haul> and you have some yesterday and then again today. you got to the source immediately it didn't take very long. and all the kids at the day off now but everybody is safe and that's the important thing. think evert that cory. so
10:10am
that settles it over at a press more elementary no gas leaking we have a good ending to this. pick up your kids if they go across more they are a part side intermediate because they were evacuated as a precautionary after teachers malls gas. but it was the heater because of a power outage. they would rather be safe than sorry in this case everybody is safe and there's no gas leak. tonight is the time
